Built this from plans out of “Fine-Popular-Wood-Smith-Handyman” Magazine – can’t recall which it was. First try at mortise and tennon joinery, using drill press, chislels, and dados on the table saw. Rough cut the circle top with the jigsaw and then finished it with a jig on the disc sander – worked pretty slick once it was set up. The whole thing is Poplar to keep it cheap (and to keep me from destroying actual wood), then just stained different colors to add some interest. The top is attached with those desktop deals from Woodcraft. Legs are finished with satin poly and then some gloss on the top.
Thanks for looking!
